To start with, I notice this interesting irony that cleaning software for phones spell more mess than what they intend to clean. The android versions for common cleaning freeware prompt us to install other freeware, or just push malware along with when you download them. Other than this, they hardly give accurate estimates of your system’s speed. Thus it’s hard to find any good cleaner in the freeware category. However, I just came across one unique exception called ‘DU speed booster’ developed by DUAPPS.
Then I downloaded this free app on my android phone and tested it by performing the options given by it and it worked well.
I am here to share the review of this product function by function. The functions areas are accelerator, trash cleaner, app manager, game booster, security and battery saver.
Let’s check out all of them one by one:
My phone was a new one, say a month old and I am not a gaming freak so never wondered it has a lot of junk that was holding its speed back. So I used its accelerator. It said that I cleared 101 point something MB’s of its memory and I wondered what must have occupied 101 MB’s in this phone. Then the Cleaner said that the phone became 26% faster. Not believing, I checked it the proof is that the phone was much smoother and the difference in speed was noticeable.
Trash Cleaner: This was one thing that kind of objected me actually. It razed of 230.2 MB’s of junk files from my phone. And these junk files included my favorite game snooperT. Ahhh! But yes it did because it was one of that malware stuff. So think twice if you have installed those viruses carrying important apps to save money. I am saying so because it’s common for all to install pirated/cracked software for personal use. Now criticism apart, this cleaner actually works well. I have many duplicate apps in my phone. It cleared all of them. And my phones interface became more understandable after removing it.
This function had 4 sub-functions. Uninstall System, pre- install, APK manager and Move App2SD. Uninstall and System pre-install are something like their analogies in your computers control panel. Rather easier to use. APK manager and Move App2SD are new features. The App2SD feature is used to transfer apps from your phone’s memory to you microSD card. All these functions were quick and hassle free.
Game Booster: This feature was something like salt and pepper on a recently swollen cut. After deleting SnooperT (as mentioned earlier), it asked to boost any games speed. Anyways, it worked well with angry birds on my phone. Although the difference was not much visible. The point is that DU software clears all pirated games and the genuine ones have little to be improved upon. So it’s a redundant function from my point of view although some may find it of use.
Security: Its Security has 3 sub-functions. Anti-virus, Permission Manager and a call & SMS blocker. The anti-virus was so so. But then you cannot expect much for free. The permission manager was good enough. And the call & SMS blocker worked its part. So this feature was reasonable enough.
Battery Saver: The battery saver was not a part of the package. It redirected me to the play store to install another related app. It was not downloaded and tested by me since it needed access to personal data. Thus users are requested to download it at their own risk.
This is great app which makes your phone faster and you can enjoy smooth experience with your phone. The best thing is it comes absolutely for free. For those who don’t want to spend money on apps, this is the right choice. Give it a try. Download DU Speed booster app here.
